Streaming doesn't work very well with so many places that don't have cable or cell service. If you want to stay in the city maybe it will work.

Just a little wait and there will be hundreds of low orbit satellites beaming down internet all over north America and beyond...

17 months and 3 days and no more Dish/Direct TV...

After checking the programming there's nothing much I'd care to watch, bunch of Disney kid programming it appears, nothing there to take me away from Directv.

I checked out Disney+ hoping it was more than it sounded. It isn't. It's just Disney which for the most part I couldn't care less about. Hulu does not offer the programming we like, so Sling will continue to be our choice. Cheapest of all the streaming subscriptions with the most channels we watch. Add a few APK's and there really isn't much that exists that I don't have access to.

As I have been looking more and more into streaming...I came across the offering by T-Mobile(T-Vision, I think). It has already rolled out BUT it's not quite ready for the RV market yet as I understand it. The Channel line up is impressive albeit expensive too. T-Mobile is counting on the merger with Sprint, infrastructure improvement and of course 5G before they really get in to the swing of things. After looking it over for a bit....the price of this streaming service is more like a SAT service getting up into the 90.00 a month range with 10.00 per additional TV's. Interesting but not quite ready for prime time RV'ing.

Not sure the market space they are trying to capture. Why is this any better than a hotspot with unlimited data and an ala carte' service for much less money?

NEWS FLASH:...........Hulu is boosting the monthly base price of its Live TV streaming service. The company said in a press release it will increase the price of Hulu+ Live TV from $44.99 to $54.99 starting Dec. 18. You still have to pay for internet access so for many users the cost of satellite TV would be highly competitive.


What I post is my 2 cents and nothing more. Please don't read anything into my post that's not there. If you disagree, that's OK.
Can't we all just get along?

That's was kind of the point about T-Mobile service and Sat...about the same price....no real bargains. With that being said, T-Mobile's deal as it stands now uses your home Wi-Fi but is headed for completely Mobile Data later(all cellular). Don't take that as the gospel, I just skimmed over the details.

Okay, seems to be confusing without the previous post.
